Types of Arts Programming
Artist in Residency - A school or facility is paired with a professional artist who collaborates with educators to create or adapt a curriculum for a particular class or client group. All residencies must incorporate an inclusive element (serving students with and without disabilities) as well as an in-service training to ensure educators are able to continue the program within the classroom's art curriculum.
Special Projects - A school or facility is paired with a professional artist who collaborates with educators to plan an inclusive, larger scale art project with a class, grade or with multiple age groups. This program may include a section to train educators on ways to adapt inclusive arts into the classroom curriculum for students with disabilities.
Festivals - A school or facility organizes an inclusive celebration of the arts where various professional artists create projects with attendees and put on performances in a festival format.
